I guess that it didn't cost an arm and a leg.

2018 Chevrolet Trax

Well we've only had it a month, so. . . Anyway, absolutely no problems. It handles like a dream. It is compact and very maneuverable. The comfort level couldn't be better in my opinion. I really like the USB ports that are provided for charging your phone or other devices, or for listening to your favorite streaming service over the vehicle's sound system. It has a really good radio with great sound. It is not super fast or powerful, but it has all that I should ever need I would think. There is an impressive amount of room for such a small vehicle, with an impressive amount of cargo space for hauling groceries, etc. I am kind of looking forward to the winter to really give the all wheel drive a real test. On top of all of that it is just a great looking rig. Needless to say we love it.

Nice vehicle

2018 Chevrolet Trax

I really love my 2018 Trax. It is roomy, comfortable, gets decent gas mileage, and performs well. The only things I don't like is everytime I turn the vehicle on the radio comes on. Very annoying. I don't really care for the air vents. The one to the left of the steering wheel has a very limited range of motion. The motor is a bit wimpy, especially when starting out or trying to pass. Once you are up to speed it is fine. The front bumper is WAY too low to the ground. I recently hit a raccoon and did $2300 worth of damage to the front end. I had pieces of the bumper dragging on the highway and had to use zip ties and wire to hold them up until I could get into the body shop. Other than these issues I do like the vehicle.

My Chevy Trax is awesome and I love all of the accommodations it comes with.

2018 Chevrolet Trax LT

I love my Chevy trax. It's great on gas consumption! It drives smoothly and so spacious inside. I enjoy all the features it comes with. I love that it is keyless. I can open the doors with buttons on the outside of the car without having to unlock the car from key ring. I love that the car locks itself whenever I exit. The amount of cup holders in the car is perfect as well as the sound system. I always feel safe driving my trax. It's easy to back into spaces especially with its back up camera. I love that it has an outlet in the back that I can plug a regular charger into. Having two USB adapters is also awesome as well a cigarette outlet. Being able to auto start the car from an app and key is also awesome.
